Heads Up is a series of 10 half hour radio programmes on student mental health. Starting during Mental Health Week on October 7th, the series runs every Wednesday at 2pm until December 9th.

We'll be talking to a wide range of counselors, researchers, students, artists and performers about issues that crop up regularly for young people - settling into college, understanding the impact of alcohol on your mind, body, emotions and overall mental health, dealing with anger and conflict, sex, intimacy and pornography, overcoming social anxiety. Each show will end with an artist performing a song or reading a poem and discussing their own mental wellbeing.
